Gearbox Software released the free-to-play MOBA hero shooter, Battleborn, in May 2016 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
The game has been removed from digital storefronts and the servers for the game have officially shut down as of yesterday, January 31. This means Battleborn is no longer playable. This includes the online multiplayer, as well as the single-player campaign.
Battleborn never lived up to Take-Two Interactive’s expectations as CEO Strauss Zelnick previously said the game has performed "below our expectations." Back in February 2020, the ability to purchase premium virtual currency in-game was no longer available.
